On Monday, July 26, 2010, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Baby Matters, LLC of Berwyn, PA, recalled 30,000 Nap Nanny portable baby recliners. The recall comes after reports surfaced of infants being found hanging over the side of the defective recliner, still harnessed in. The device poses entrapment, suffocation, and fall hazards.The CPSC is currently investigating the report of a 4 month old baby girl in Michigan who died in a Nap Nanny that was being used in a crib. She was found hanging over the side of the recliner, even though she was harnessed in, caught between the Nap Nanny and the crib bumper.

The Nap Nanny instructions do not reccommend using the product in cribs or confined spaces, or on tables or counter tops. But the harnesses do not seem to be keeping infants in place while in the Nap Nanny. This situation worsens when velcro straps located underneath the Nap Nanny cover are not properly attached to the “D” rings.
